It was basically a waiting game. I showed up to Brett and Mitch Erzinger's house sometime in the early afternoon of a Saturday in February, and began to set up a situation that, if I was lucky, Jason Lytle would sit down at later and play a few songs. The session liaison and O's and the Oculist front man Jeff Suri joined shortly after and we sat around, talked about music, and waited for his cell phone to ring. Formally of Grandaddy, Jason was in town for a show with his newest project Admiral Radley (formed with members of Earlimart), and we were hoping that he would indeed show up between sound check and AdRad's set time at the Satellite.
Sure enough around 9pm, Jeff's phone rang. We gave him directions, and he pulled a minivan up to the front of the house 10 minutes later. Jason came in from the rain with a smile on his face, sat down, and enthusiastically played a few songs -- a couple of which were even unreleased. It really couldn't have gone any better than it did.
Thanks so much to…
Jeff Suri (O's and the Oculist)
